INTRODUCTION

Following the success of the service offered by DHL last year, the Garmin Titan Desert is renewing its contract with DHL for bicycle transport services. This is a great service to participants, being convenient for travelling long distances without having to transport the bicycle, as well as the reliability and trust behind an international company like DHL.

DHL is present in more than 220 countries and regions around the world, making it the biggest company in its sector at global level. With a workforce of over 340,000 people, it provides solutions for a wide range of logistics needs.
